Daocheng Yading, also known as Yading Nature Reserve, is known by locals as Aden Scenic Area. Located in the southern part of Daocheng County in Ganzi Prefecture, it is mainly composed of three mountains, Xiannairi, Yangmaiyong, and Xianuoduoji, as well as surrounding rivers, lakes, and alpine meadows. There are not only magnificent and sacred snow-capped mountains in the scenic area, but also vast meadows, colorful forests, and blue crystal clear lakes. Hiking on foot like the local Tibetans is a better way to experience the scenery in Yading. However, due to the high altitude of the Aden Protected Area, the entire walk still requires considerable physical fitness.

We went to Yading scenic area around end of Nov. It’s warmer than we expected and it’s the start of low season that entrance to the park was free. Less tourists, good weather and free entrance make such a great timing to visit the magnificent site. The park is home to three mountains considered holy by Tibetan. Tourists can hike up to over 4,000m to see the two high-altitude lakes. The trail itself is nicely paved but because of the high altitude, we have to walk very slow. But it’s rewarding to see the incredible color of the water and the peaks when we reached the goal.
Yading Nature Reserve is one of my bucket list in asia and she is not standard national park. She is the mystical Shangri-la. Surrounded by the three majestic mountains and the rich Tibetan Buddhism’s influence, the entire environment manifests an indescribable, high spiritual aura.

Yading National Park and some pics from Litang, the city that has just a few tourists but is very lovely. Litang is the best place for me and I need to go back there again. China is becoming a country that I keep visiting every year for 4 years now. Just love it. #wintergetaway #lovechina #china #yading #worldheritage #travelinspiration #instagramworthydestinations #unforgettableexperiences
